Come visit the Estuarium this month for “Cetacean September”, where we will be celebrating all things whales and dolphins!
Last 2 days for 2016 “Meet the Beach” are:
Friday, August 19th, 12 – 3, Burfoot County Park
Saturday, August 20th, 1 – 4, Tolmie State Park
On Wednesday, July 27th, 50 kids visited the Estuarium. Picture shows kids, with South Sound Estuary Association Educator, Heather, exploring the aquariums and learning about the animals that live there. The kids also participated in a walking tour of the historic shoreline of downtown Olympia and participated in an exercise demonstrating how what we humans do to and put on the land ends up in Puget Sound. Interesting day.
Carrie Ziegler, Muralist, and helpers have finished the addition to last summer’s Estuarium mural. It is wonderful. This picture doesn’t do it justice…come take a look!

Come visit our critters!
Next docent training/estuarium orientation is scheduled for this coming Saturday, the 25th, 4:30 – 5:30, at the Estuarium, 309 State Ave. NE, Olympia.

In addition to crabs, sea stars, anemone, and other creatures, we were surprised to see Nanomia Siphonophore (picture on the left) in great numbers at last Friday’s Pier Peer. Also found several chitons (picture on right). Sign up for a pier peer (under events) for the opportunity to see unusual marine life yourself.
